Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- Ben Wallace and the Detroit Pistons are enjoying their homestand. Wallace collected a season-best 17 points and a season-high 24 rebounds as the Pistons defeated the Washington Wizards, 90-80, to improve to 4-0 on their five-game homestand. An All-Star for the first time this season, Wallace victimized one of his former teams. He played for Washington for three seasons before being traded to Orlando in 1999. "Ben Wallace was fabulous," Wizards coach Doug Collins said. "I wish every big man could watch what this guy does on the floor for this team. He plugs every hole defensively. He had 24 rebounds, 17 points. His will is just the backbone of his team." "This is a kid who wants it bad enough that no matter how much of a disadvantage he may be offensively, he makes up for it in a lot of different areas," Michael Jordan said. "I think a lot of players in the league should learn from his dedication to the game and his love for the game. Even though he's not a great offensive player, he can make a difference in the game." Chauncey Billups added 25 points and Richard Hamilton 19 for Detroit (41-23), which opened a 1 1/2-game lead over New Jersey for the best record in the Eastern Conference. The Pistons had lost a season-high seven straight contests - the last five on the road - before its current four-game winning streak. Detroit took the lead for good at 7-5 on a jumper by Michael Curry four minutes into the game, led by eight points after one quarter and 46-35 at the break. Billups, who had been averaging 27.8 points over his previous five games, scored 15 points in the third quarter as the Pistons opened up a 73-56 advantage. "They do a really good job setting the tone for us offensively," Clifford Robinson said. "Rip is very good in the open court and does a really good job getting into the lane. Chauncey runs the offense for us but at the same time, he does a good job creating some offense for himself." After the Pistons scored the opening basket of the final period, the Wizards embarked on an 11-0 run, climbing within 75-67 on a dunk by Jahidi White with 8:03 left. But Billups stopped the burst with a jumper and Hamilton added a 3-pointer and a layup to make it 82-68 with 4:54 to go. Washington got no closer than eight points thereafter. Wallace scored Detroit's final points on a 3-pointer with 11 seconds left. It was just his second career shot from the arc and first of the season. "I was happy he hit that shot at the end," Collins said. "I know how hard that guy has worked on his shot and for as much as he does for that team, it was great to see him step out and shoot that ball." "Ben can shoot," former Piston Jerry Stackhouse said. "He doesn't really take that many (3-pointers). I had never really seen him take one but I know in practice he can shoot the three-ball." Stackhouse scored 24 points to pace Washington, which lost for the fifth time in seven games. Jordan added 15 points but just eight after the first quarter for the Wizards, who are a game behind Milwaukee for the eighth and final playoff spot in the East. "We still have a chance, obviously," Jordan said. "We're only a couple of games away. That depends on how we want to play the next 17 games. We definitely have a chance." But Jordan, a long-time nemesis of the Pistons with Chicago who nevertheless received a warm reception, and his teammates were upstaged by Wallace. "I let most of those feelings go," Wallace said about being traded by Washington. "I still have some. (But) it was his (Jordan's) last night (at the Palace) so I just wanted to come out, play hard and compete against him. I think that is the ultimate way to pay respect to a guy."
